Dear APPNA Members,
It has been over a week since APPNA's 40th Summer Convention ended on Sunday, July 9th. I want to reiterate that it was an absolute pleasure for me personally to host this year's convention in my own home town. Not many presidents get that privilege and I am also blessed that I had a wonderful team of friends and colleagues in my host committee who worked relentlessly to put together a fabulous event. I hope that you enjoyed your stay in Orlando and had a good time at the Convention.
We made an all-out effort to entertain you, keep you comfortable and apprise you of different projects and work that APPNA has been doing. I am very grateful to Ms. Karen Armstrong for participating in the Social Forum on Friday afternoon and giving her keynote address at the Saturday's banquet. Her leadership and compassion is an inspiration, as the world needs more of empathy and benevolence these trying times of divisiveness.
One of the highlights of Saturday evening was the tribute to the founding president of APPNA Dr. Zaheer Ahmad and all the past presidents with a cake cutting ceremony. A video produced by Mr. Ajmal Zaheer was showcased on the occasion and can be viewed at the following link:
We hope to see you again in Cincinnati for the fall meeting in October 26-28th, 2017 and then at the winter meeting in Lahore in December 2017.
